The town of Lutz began with the construction of a train depot near the corner of Lutz-Lake Fern Rd and US Highway 41, where a replica of the depot, currently an art gallery, stands today. Lutz is somewhat unusual in the fact that some of its zip codes extend into Pasco County, also referred to as Pasco Lutz.
Though Lutz is close to many Tampa amenities and has great interstate access, the town prides itself in keeping its rural roots. Thanks in part to the Lutz Citizen’s Coalition the area maintains its small town charm with winding roads, open fields and dense woodland areas.
If you enjoy nature and are looking for the peace and quiet of a rural community with the convenience and access to all the amenities of city living, Lutz might just be the perfect place for you!
